Celebrating Lambeth’s Best Businesses

Business of the Year

The Vaults

From simple beginnings – a smart plan to reuse the Old Vic Tunnels – The Vaults has expanded in just one year to become home to: an art gallery, a soon-to-be-established theatre, the Vaults Festival for emerging artists and much more.

Entered under the Best of Start-up category, the judges felt it covered all bases – solid business growth, establishing strong ties with the local and wider Lambeth community, and making innovative and diverse use of space.  For these reasons it stood out as the overall Business of the Year.
